SUV crashes into school; 2 teachers suffer minor injuries

GARFIELD, N.J. (AP) — Officials say a car driven by a staffer at a northern New Jersey school crashed through a basement window at the building, leaving two teachers with minor injuries.

The accident occurred Friday at the James Madison School in Garfield.

Authorities say the staffer was pulling out of a parking space when she apparently put her sport utility vehicle into drive instead of reverse. The SUV then went through the window and became wedged in a brick wall.

The driver was not injured. Authorities say she probably won’t face any charges and did not release her name.

The two teachers were treated at a hospital for minor injuries.

The accident did not interrupt school activities.
